Hey all,

We're planning another trip to the US later this year. After Isa dug up some photos from our meetup in Montreal back in '05, it really got me wishing we could get another one of these organised. US or Canada seem like a good place to have these meetups and I'd love to try and get one organised while we are over there.

I'll be in San Diego mostly, but happy to cast a broader net. SF, Vancouver, Seattle, LA all aren't really too far. Even further afield would be fine by me if we can get a group together.

When, I hear you ask? Around April. Exact dates to be confirmed. But I'm just checking in to see if any of you are interested. The bigger the group the better ;) It can be a 10th anniversary celebration for TP. A few months early, but it's pretty close!

Cheers,
Peter

I vote we meet in LAS VEGAS!!. That way I don't have to travel and all of you get to visit Vegas. A win, win!

Hehe, Vegas isn't my favourite of places, but it's not all that far from San Diego either, so I guess I'd be open to it ;)

He, I'll probably be in SD in September... just a few months off :)

Sadly, we're probably going to miss it too - DAMN! Maybe we'll win a lottery... Things do change so hope springs eternal. (Montreal was fun as was Dublin.)

Due to location? What if it was somewhere nearby like Chicago? How can we have a meetup without the Kalavs ?!

Due to location and budget. Our house started a rebellion with major things breaking down - there went any travel money. Since the brewery has already booked the airfares for Barbados (in March), I now have to pay them back for my flights - they don't take credit cards. (Not complaining since it was an offer we couldn't refuse. But, you already know the details on that.)

CHICAGO area? WE CAN DO THAT!!!! We even know where Chicago is located on a map! Plus we do that trip regularly. We will be out of country March 1st - 9th. Have a family gathering in the city on April 7th for a few hours. I'll send an e-mail to you. Plus, Katie isn't too far away either in Iowa City so she'd probably show up. (Easily bribed with a bottle of Jameson's.)

Wow, now we feel special. Okay, people say that a lot about us - like in 'short bus' special.

Like I said, I'm open to anywhere in the US where we can get a large enough group. It might be easier in the northern part of the states since maybe we can attract a few of the Canadians down for a few days :)

I vote yes! Looks like we'll have to gather the troops from that other site I won't mention... ;)
